MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Starlin Castro returned from a hamstring injury that had sidelined him since Feb. 27, getting a single and a walked Wednesday in the Chicago Cubs' 2-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

Castro, who hurt his left leg in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, walked against Jorge De La Rosa leading off the first, singled in the third and came out after the inning.

Playing his usual shortstop position, Castro just missed throwing out leadoff batter Eric Young on a grounder leading off the game. Josh Rutledge followed with a grounder to second baseman Darwin Barney, who threw to second, and Castro's throw to first just missed getting a double play. Troy Tulowitzki followed with an RBI double.

Castro had three assists in the second, when Jordan Pacheco, Nolan Arenado and Ramon Hernandez all grounded to shortstop.

Cubs starter Edwin Jackson gave up one run and three hits in five innings, retiring eight in a row. De La Rosa escaped bases-loaded in the first and third innings, and allowed four hits in four innings with six strikeouts.

Tulowitzki had a sixth-inning sacrifice fly against Kyuji Fujikawa.
